  • Minor brag; 10$ Saddle find!

    I went to a garage sale last weekend and saw a very sad looking curled up saddle sitting on the pavement. I bought it for 10$ and cleaned it up, and low and behold it’s a Crosby Prix des Nations. 17.5, forward flap!

    Wow! What a find!

    I have an old Hermès that is like butter, but like that Crosby, these days they don’t fit the “other than TB’s”.

          Excellent find! One of my favourates too. I bought one for $50 this spring, complete. And a Courbette Stylist for $50 a couple years ago (which fits my "narrow" mare just perfectly!). It's so nice when we LOVE the old style saddles, and others don't value them at all. Bonus for US!

            I’m going to try riding in it this week and see if my bum will allow it
            If not, I will sell it to someone who will love it. I hate to see moldy, unused curled up saddles sitting somewhere. It breaks my heart!

              That's great! It looks in really good shape too. It's like rescue horses but a lot less money !

                What a bargain. Congrats.
                It is better to ride 5 minutes a day than it is to ride 35 minutes on a Sunday.

                  I am pretty sure I have the same one in my shed collecting dust. I had no idea what it could be...
